Lost My Paycheck

November 15th, 2014 at 11:20 am

I lost my paycheck yesterday. My boss handed it to me about 10:30am as he was leaving for the day. (This was the senior partner. The junior partner normally does this task, but he was on vacation last week).

As usual, I separated the check from the stub, placed the stub in an envelope, which I keep in a file in my desk drawer, entered the amount of the paycheck into my check register, inserted the check into my checkbook, and put the checkbook into my purse.

At lunch time, I went to a CVS to get a passport photo picture taken, went to my allergy doctor for my shot, while there I paid my bill and made my annual appointment at the receptionist's desk, then bought lunch at a nearby Panda Express. At each of those three stops I was in and out of my purse.

Later in the afternoon, when I was doing client banking, I intended to deposit my paycheck while I was there, and discovered that it was gone. Bleah!!

I called all three places, but no one had turned in my lost paycheck.

So on Monday, I get to tell the junior partner what I have managed to do.

    Hopefully it is easily corrected, but it isn't fun to lose a paycheck that way.

    Going forward, is direct deposit an option? It's such a time-saver!

    So sorry!

    It will turn out fine, it is just embarrassing! I handle other people's money, and lose my own?

    Jenn, I would LOVE to have direct deposit, but bosses do not want to do it.
